Curated by Gina Marie Lewis, Process: Reaffirmation is an exhibition which focuses on and reaffirms the processes of artists within their studios. This exhibition honors the personal philosophies, practices, and vocabularies of eight artists and attempts to explore a visual dialogue between their works.
The exhibition represents an opportunity for artists to retain power over their work in the context of their own philosophies and interpretations. In some cases, the relationships between their works may be obvious, and other instances invite the viewer to inquire and explore the relationships from their own point of view. As a starting point, such aspects as linear relationships, creation of new processes, innovative use of materials, the making of marks, and defining space were most apparent during the curatorial process.
Gina Marie Lewis is a mixed media artist and educator. She holds an MFA in painting from Howard University and a BA in Cultural Studies and Studio Art from Norwich University.
She has curated exhibitions at Montpelier Arts Center and Howard University and has exhibited at the Hampton University Museum in Hampton, VA, Flashpoint Gallery in DC, and The Banneker-Douglass Museum in Annapolis, MD. She is currently teaching at Bowie State University.
